Vol. 9 Contents



With the dog days just beyond the horizon, we are getting sirius and heating up our own brand of caniculārēs: introducing a new slate of content so bright you’re gonna want to wear shades!

Volume 9 features poetry by Laura Broadbent and Rachael Katz to name only a couple; interviews with Erín Moure and Chus Pato, Kevin Barry, Larrissa Lai and Rita Wong, as well as Janet Rogers; reviews of Divya Victor, Jon Paul Fiorentino, Donna Tartt, Redell Olsen, Chris Tysh and more; essays by Alessandro Porco, Mira Mattar, Martha Baillie, Erin Lyndal Martin, Prathna Lor, and Jaqueline Valencia on film; a short take by Cory Collins, and (of course) SO much more! Make sure to check back often – there are a number of surprise additions on their way every single day over the coming weeks.

LEMON HOUND is also pleased to announce that a number of exclusive folios by guest editors are percolating for summer and fall! In the meantime, this Friday’s dance break is brought to you by summer wine.

…This TOC is under construction, so check back often
